Teachers, we want to hear from you: Will you rally at the Indiana Statehouse on Nov. 19?

So many teachers asked to take Nov. 19 off to rally at the Statehouse that some 30 districts across Indiana have canceled school or scheduled e-learning days. Both the Indiana State Teachers Association and the American Federation of Teachers Indiana plan to show up in force on the ceremonial opening day of the legislative session.

Teacher pay, education funding, passing a hold harmless exemption, and repealing new license requirements are all issues union leaders said are priorities.

In advance of the rally, Chalkbeat wants to hear from teachers themselves. What are you doing on Nov. 19 and why?
